Fermanagh fans made the trek to Galway to cheer on Fermanagh RMG19


AFTER  a gallant draw against Galway on Easter Sunday, Fermanagh footballers are facing into what is arguably their most important game in many years this Sunday at 2pm.
Victory would ensure Fermanagh’s survival in Division Two of the National Football League. However, as luck would have it, the opposition is provided by old nemesis and near neighbours Tyrone.
The biggest crowd of the year so far is expected as Brewster and with a throw-in of 2pm it promises to be a busy afternoon in Enniskillen.
Police in Enniskillen are advising of probable traffic delays and congestion on Sunday April 3 due to the game and  motorists intending to travel to or through Enniskillen on the day should allow extra time for their journey, and spectators should get to the game early. Those not attending the game should avoid the area during the peak flow periods before and after the match.
Fermanagh have already locked horns with Mickey Harte’s men once this year losing by seven points in the McKenna Cup semi-final, but captain Eoin Donnelly insists recent history will have only marginal relevance this time around. After a determined display in Tuam recording a point against Galway on Sunday he believes that if they can replicate that form this week they’ll be playing division two football once more next year. 
“If we go there and put in a strong enough performance we’ll get the reward for that. It comes down to the attitude we go with and I’m confident we can get something out of the game.”
Throw-in for the game at Brewster Park on Sunday, April 3 is 2pm.
